Astım Cave

Eastern Mediterranean

Around 500m west of the main entrance to the Caves of Heaven and Hell is Asthma Cave (Astim Mağarası), which supposedly relieves sufferers of the affliction. It's worth the extra ₺6 to explore these other-worldly grottoes, with their staggering limestone formations. The average temperature is 14° C and humidity ranges from 85% to 98%, depending on the season. There's a huge cafe-restaurant here, as well as a shop selling souvenirs and provisions.
